The Philadelphia Museum of Art & its Famous Steps!

One of the largest museums in the United States, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is perhaps best known for something else - boxer Rocky Balboa ran up its famous steps while training for the big fight in the 1976 film, Rocky. Today, visitors from around the world do the same, taking in the amazing view of Philly at the top. Inside the museum, there are over 200 galleries of international masterpieces in painting, sculpture, photography, textiles, and architecture.
